Surge Protection for PV

The company

CITEL, a French company founded in 1937, has been manufacturing surge


protection since 1945.
CITEL offers a complete range of surge protection adapted to various
networks including Low Voltage, Telecom, Data, Radiocom.
Since 2005, CITEL has developed a range of surge protection and integrated
enclosure solutions specifically for the photovoltaic market.

CITEL's mission is to bring high-performance solutions compliant with the


worlds leading standards in order to insure the best efficiency and reliability
of your photovoltaic system.

Protection of PV devices
against
transient overvoltages

Most of the solar module manufacturers offer a warranty


of 20 years or more on their products. The cost of such
devices is then calculated on this very long period.
However those installations are very regularly exposed
to lightnings and overvoltages, which can considerably
reduce the desired life expectancy. The use of adapted
surge protections is then highly recommended.

Surge Protectors for PV devices

Several aspects have to be considered to evaluate the risk

The photovoltaic installation can be exposed to

"Lightning and Overvoltages" :

overvoltages on different networks :

The more the solar panel field is expanded, the more

the risk of "lightning" issue is important.

- AC network : surge protectors are necessary,

The risk is multiple : direct effect (lightning impact

sometimes mandatory, for the 230V monophase

directly on the modules) and indirect effect (overvoltages

network (or 3-phases 230/400V) on which the PV

on modules, on the converter/inverter and other

inverter is connected.

connecions).
When the Photovoltaic devices are located on industrial

- DC network : surge protectors are necessary,

sites, the risk of operation overvoltages should be taken in

sometimes mandatory, on the continuous network

account as well.

in between the modules and the PV inverter.

The risks level is directly linked to the density of local

lightning and the exposure of the lines.

- Data Network : if the PV inverter is linked to


data lines (transducers, sensors, supervision) surge
protectors are sometimes required.

Surge Protectors for PV installations - AC side


The connection of the PV to low voltages should be protected according to the Guide UTE
C15-712 recommandation. Depending on the kind of network, the presence of lightning rod or on primary
existing surge protectors, CITEL proposes several solutions.

Surge Protectors for Data Lines


The PV installation can be interconnected to different data networks (transducers, sensors, supervision..). In
that case the use of adapted surge protectors on those networks is recommended.

Surge Protectors for PV installations - DC side


The DC input of the inverters should be protected according to the recommandations of the UTE C15712 Guide. Citel has developped a whole range of products devoted to this application : DS50PV. This one
proposes several solutions :
DS50PV : standard solution using specific varistors, available in common or differential mode.
DS50PV-.../G : version including a branch with gas tube linked to the ground, allowing the total
suppression of leakage current. Protection in common and differential mode.

When the installation is equipped with lightning rods, it is recommanded to use surge protectors specifically
designed to dissipate a part of the direct impact of the lightning. For those cases, CITEL has developped the
DS60PV series Type 1 surge protectors being able to take up 12.5 kA a pole for a 10/350s wave.
